Ikkitousen 1/9 Scale Kanu Unchou Nurse Figure - Preorder

Kanu Unchou of Ikkitousen fame hurts people. In Taki Corp's upcoming figure, the warrior becomes a caregiver. Kanu dons a pink nurse's uniform, a pink nurse's cap, and seemingly slinks across the floor in search of the injured and bloodied. The figure is set to 1/9 scale and is constructed of PVC. Preorders are welcome to ship in late May 2008 at JPY4800 or US$49.90.

Sesame Street Cute Full Dekagurumi Shoulder Bag - Preorder

American pop culture is pervasive throughout the world. Kids in Kazakhstan listen to Britney alongside native songstress Zarina and everyone in the UAE knows what an iPod is. American movies enjoy far-flung penetration around the globe which in turn promotes American culture and perhaps viewpoints. Sesame Street is an American cultural phenomenon but the franchise has also been inculcated into the minds of Japanese children thanks to television, books, and of course, toys.

NCS receives a few hundred Japanese Sesame Street preorders every year. We dodge most of them but occasionally, we're be drawn to one or two and throw them up for preorder. Today's offer is for a Sesame Street shoulder bag which features one of three animals from the popular series. Preorders are welcome to ship in late May 2008 at US$15.90 each.
